Default Tools and Such

Hi, I'm an advanced amateur repair type. I get watches that aren't working and try to fix them. I love working on old Seiko divers and the like.
I want to get a microscope that will serve me well into the future.
Do you all have suggestions?
Thanks
Mike

I have a microscope but never use it. Some watchmakers I know - never use theirs either.

I don't see the worth of having anything that gets closer than a 20 x eyeglass.

BUBBLES !!! I hope they come back for another season. It's a shame that John Dunsworth (Lahey) passed away, but I think Randy can picked up the slack as the new manager with a eccentric sidekick.

Yup a great actor. I think we have seen their best in many ways...but oh man I loved that show. Anyone who hasn't watched it should....

I quite liked their podcast recently.
